Intense Day - Intense Future!

Today, or rather this morning, was very intense! I have been pretty much worn out and not gotten that much done after I got home ...

I had to meet two Uni teachers this morning, and although it ended up working out pretty well, I was still so nervous, that I have a hard time "recovering" from it!
Also, one thing that wasn't too great! I just realized that my planning for this semester won't work out ... I really wanted to finish these two "special" courses first, take the exams and get them over and done with before my last course starts, which is on November 5. However, since I didn't get started until today - which is very late indeed! - and it was a lot more stuff than I thought - I don't think I stand a chance to get it all finished by the first week of November. After all, that's only six weeks away, and during these two courses I will do :
  • About 1,500 pages of litterature (Swedish and English)
  • 20 pages of Hebew text (meaning I'm gonna have to know it in Swedish and Hebrew, know the translations and be able to analyze various word-forms)
  • One paper
  • Two oral exams.
I honestly don't think I'm capable of doing that in six weeks, no matter how hard I try.
Still, the more I get done before the next course, the better it is. I have a feeling that course will be pretty demanding too, we have a rather demanding teacher and I just found out that over approximately 10 weeks, we will have ONE exam which will account for the entire grade! That is tough in itself and I also learned that we'll take it (don't remember the date, some time in mid-January) 4-30 - 8.30 p.m. - thanks a lot!!
I have a strong feeling I will definately be busy in the future, that's for sure!

I have a number of thoughts regarding Uni now, my future there, but I'm not quite in the mood for going into some deep discussion about that right now. I want to write some of it down here, and make a more extensive note of it in my Swedish blog, 'Att leva med social fobi', but I'm afraid it's going to have to wait a while, until I can sort everything out!

A little less than 24 hours left of my Tradera auctions now - don't forget to check them out!! This time lots of stuff with famous twins Mary-Kate & Ashley Olsen, but also dvds, magazines (Dreamwatch, SFX and more) and lots more! Enjoy!

Hej Jessica! Tack för senast, det var verkligen jättetrevligt! Jag ser också fram emot inflyttningsfesten och vi kna väl prata närmare sen om vilken tid du kanske kunde komma hem till mig innan och ta en liten fördrink? :) Allt gott!

wow..sounds like you'll be a busy girl ! Good luck with your studies! Have to admit right now I rather miss studying though... LOL It sure is a busy lifestyle, but I rather like it.

Jessica said...

Yeah, I definately will be busy! I kinda like the studies too, it's very interesting but what I don't like is that you can never really take time off ... you can ALWAYS do MORE and that can be tough some times ...

The Darkest Night said...

Yeah, I know what you mean... you never really have any time off as a student (well, VERY rarely)... and if you do something besides studying you always feel guilty...

although I remember how we always said how great it would be to have a job instead of being students, since you would "only" be working like 8 hours a day, and then you'd have SO much time off... yeah right! LOL It's just the little problem of me being SO much more tired after working 8 hours than I was if I had studied for 16 hours... hm...there's gotta be a better way of life... *lol*

Jessica said...

Exactly, you never ever feel like you can enjoy relaxing, because there's always something else you COULD be doing!! However, I do understand that keeping a job is tiresome too, so I guess I should complain too much!
And hey, I'd better get used to studying, because according to my current plans I'll be doing it for a LONG time (according to plan, I'll have my doctor's degree in the year 2014 *lol*) ....
